This game got me when I first saw the trailer. What a weird and original game! Although the design might look a bit crappy on a first look, the collage style makes the whole game very unique and creates a deep and believable atmosphere.
Great characters, music, story, dialogues, voice acting....a game that really sucked me into its world! Every scene is full of creativity and nice little ideas like playing a cat, being blind for a short time, the flashback, the re-awakening. Although I don't like this serial killer stuff the psychological depth of the two characters made it for me!
The only thing I would complain about is the bad microphone and the saving system.
This game is a rare one, I'm really happy I've come across it. It focus on the story, dark and depressive, still beatiful and breathtaking. The quests aren't really elaborated but it doesn't matter, I see this game more like an interactive movie. The nearest analog I can think of is Fahrenheit.
Why not 10/10? The storyline has some issues with common sense. A few times it happened that characters were being just funny (even taking into account their mental state) or the laws of physics were kind of violated. But... You could say it's minor problems comparing to everything else.
In conclusion, I strongly recommend you, unknown reader, to try this game. It's unusual, mature, deep, obscure, sometimes cruel... and awesome.
